Is it Spring Yet?

Hi Everyone,

In keeping with our challenge theme this week “Think Spring,” I am excited to share a Spring inspired project with you!  It’s my hope that the more we envision Spring, the faster it will arrive!…lol!


Unfortunately Old Man Winter reared his head again this week blasting us with bitter cold temperatures and another snowstorm.  So needless to say I am extremely ready for winter to be over and Spring to begin.  They say, “beware  the Ides of March” for a reason I guess : )

I was enjoying some time playing with some of the Cheery Lynn flower dies including the leaves from the Frangipani flower and decided to make a Dahlia flower and that is when I got the idea to feature it on these Spring inspired watering cans.   I had such a great time making the larger one that I decided to make a matching tiny version as well : )


For the tiny watering can, I used Lady Kate Edger as the trim as well as the Daisy Strip die for the larger flower and I die cut some sweet little Darling Daisies to place inside the can.  Of course, I could not resist adding some nature as well.  You can find the sweet little ladybugs, bubble bees,dragonflies and even a butterfly all packaged as a set when you purchase  Tiny Things with Wings.


Here’s a list of the dies used for this project:

A196 – Darling Daisies
B134 – Frangipani with Leaves (I used the small leaf used for petals)
B136 – Anastasia Border
B181 – Build a Flower # 1
B259 – Daisy Strip
B261 – Tags 2
B266 – Tiny Things with Wings
B278 – Lady Kate Edger
D137 – Sweet Williams
DL226 – Snowflowers Set Two (I used this for the base of the Dahlia)
SF-1 – Leaf
SF-3 – Stacker Flower 3

I hope you can find some time to visit the challenge this week and put in your entry where the theme is Think Spring.  With your entry you will have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs!

I am entering this project in the following challenges:
